U.S. Climate Warming

If the climate is warming, won't the entire U.S. be having above normal temperatures?
The answer is "no".
Even though the temperature trend clearly shows a warming climate for the U.S. since 1980, there have still been areas that have experienced below normal temperatures. However, if you look at the amount of red (above normal) and blue (below normal), there is more red than blue on the attached graph (especially since the mid 1990's), which subtly shows the current warming trend.
